Congratulations are in order for first-time mom of a newborn baby boy! R&B singer Ciara gave birth early Monday morning in Los Angeles, according to a report from Page Six on May 19.

The news of the birth of the baby boy is the third big announcement from the Atlanta singer and her beaux, rapper Future. The couple announced their engagement back in October of this year and began dating in early 2013. According to US Weekly, the news of her pregnancy was revealed during an interview on the ABC day time talk show, "The View," back in January.

When asked about her feelings toward her pregnancy, the 28-year-old explained to US Weekly that she feels "great."

"I didn't even know what to expect, but it's been a very easy process—and it's been so much fun," she gushed. "Honestly, it's been the coolest experience in my life! Besides getting engaged which happened last year, this has been pretty awesome."

Ciara remained very active while pregnant, continuing to perform, conduct interviews and even "crip-walk." The dance was revealed via Ciara's Instagram account where she posted the video of her dancing and captioned it, “Ever seen a pregnant lady crip walk? #BlimpeWalk,” she captioned the video. “Goofing off before I hit the track 2 walk #LoveMusic #Love Dance Happy Friday everyone!! XO”

Although this is baby No. 1 for Ciara, fiance Future, real name nee Nayvadius D. Wilburn, is already a father of three, and this will be his second son. The parents have already chosen a name for their new bundle of joy and although it is mums the word to the public, Ciara found the task of choosing a baby name to be quite simple.

"It was kind of easy," she shared. "But the middle name was a little hard for me… I went with what felt right in my soul and my gut. I didn't second guess it."

Fans will just have to wait for the big reveal of the baby's name and pictures. In the meantime, we can settle for simply offering our congratulations to the happy couple.
